Giuliani Denies He Is Being Considered For Attorney General

Tyler Durden's picture

Following this morning's Acios report that Trump is considering replacing AG Sessions with Rudy Gioiliani, the former New York City Mayor spoke to CNN, and disputed the report.

Giuliani denied rumors that he was being considered to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday, and contradicted the President by saying Sessions was right to recuse himself from matters related to the 2016 campaign and Russian meddling therein. Sessions, Giuliani told CNN, “made the right decision under the rules of the Justice Department.”

As a reminder, Axios reported on Monday morning, citing unnamed “West Wing confidants,” that “President Trump is so unhappy with Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he has raised the possibility of bringing back Rudolph Giuliani to head the Justice Department.” Trump last week expressed frustration that Sessions had recused himself from the Russia investigation.

During an interview with The New York Times, Trump said Sessions's move was "unfair" to him. The president also said he likely would not have picked Sessions to serve as attorney general if he had known he was going to recuse himself. In a tweet Monday, Trump again went after Sessions, calling him "beleaguered."

"So why aren't the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?" Trump tweeted Monday.

Yeah, if Trump was going to fire Sessions he would've done so already. Trump at the end of the day is a Deep State President with an Entertaining image that idiot Americans can just eat up or be disctracted by. When all is set and done he is about Big money for the Military Industrial Complex and more power to the Police State.

Trump also has a strong personal dislike for marijuana.

Trump wants Sessions there.

What a stupid comment. The guy routinely fires people long after hiring them. He also supports states' rights to make up their own minds regarding weed. Do you not remember the campaign?

Overleveraged_and_Impatient's picture

Oh right the campaign. Where he also mentioned Janet Yellen acts politically and has created a bubble, right? 

The same campaign where he told Hillary that she'd 'be in jail?"


Let's get real. He is Deep State President in a "nationalist" flavor. Everyone fell for it. He is an entertaining side show while police get more powerful and weapons makers get their pockets lined.

hey bra, just a lil FYI all that shit could still happen bra. its only been 6 months, and its not like the media, the government, OR either party is really on Trumps side. In fact they are quite visibly his enemy, unless of course you are retarded, liberal, or from an alternate universe.(no offense to mentally handicapped people or people from other universes.) Wake up! did you forget the media hates Trump? Did you forget the democrats hate Trump? Did you forget the republicans hate Trump? Did you forget big money hates Trump? Or or you to stupid to see the elephant in the room, that the WHOLE system is against Trump? Yall aint found your way out of the matrix yet?

There could be multiple Grand Juries hearing evidence, close to indicting Clinton and others, and we would have no idea. Leaking Grand Jury information is a serious crime, and if the GJ's were hearing the crimes of Dems, the MSM would NEVER leak or mention anything related to it.

You're right, Trump has been in office for six months, dealing with a barrage of attacks, a huge list of things to do, while the congress obstructs him from filling positions needed to run his administration. Add to that the fact that the fake conservatives are treasonous globalists that are on board to rake down the US and wipe out the middle class, and you have what we are seeing now. A bunch of liars that can't even repeal ObamaCare..Why should we replace it with anything more than a true free market system?

So the deep state wants to get rid of him because he's one of their own? That makes sense. Oh wait, he's a plant huh? That's right.... we learned that during the primary. It's all so confusing.

not just stooopid, that's a fullRetard comment - but not surprising since the influx of tards for a while now..

The campaign where he said he'd go after killary but then said she's a good person after he got elected and that she's been through enough?

The campaign where he called the stock market a big fat bubble yet now praises it?

There are a bunch more example of campaign trump vs president trump.

Amazing the way trumptards are acting just like obozo hope and changers...and are oblivious to it.

Sessions has been a disappointment but I do like the fact even if totally under reported that the Pedophiles have started to be arrested now.

PorscheNoSub's picture

This is the picture my intuition is starting to paint. Something like Cloak and Dagger Politics on 11: distraction, obfuscation, and jazz on one hand and hard action on the other. I have said before I was expecting perhaps a little more faster and visible action, but this isn't the only area where a very strong base is being or has been laid and the initial results can be found if you look for them. 

Duc888's picture



6000+ in CONUS in 6 months, not bad.

Malleus Maleficarum's picture

Yeah, arresting actual kiddie-diddlers and tree-jumpers is great! But pedophiles are universally despised and labeling someone as such creates a visceral, uncritical and unthinking reaction. Governments know and use this. The fact that they're not reporting it should raise some major red flags! They want recognition for every little penny-ante bust, but not for the takedown of major pedophile rings? Not too hard in our era to place a few dirty pictures on a perceived enemy's hard drive, or promise $500 a pop to the local Geek Squad! Just something to consider...

The PIZZA truck with kids was headed RIGHT for DC!


The truck was heading to Washington D.C. and is believed to be part of an "Elite" child trafficking network, according to San Antonio Police Chief William McManus.

I just think they've got some low level guys, then turn them and work their way up to the Masters of the Pizzaverse.  Standard old time prosecutor stuff.

No, Giuliani's gone anti-Trump since he didn't get a good bid during the transition.

The rat in the left corner.

Seriously though, it would be so easy to provide disinformation to various people and see if it leaks, that I can't believe these are leaks. More likely some fabricated horseshit provided to the media with instructions it be falsely attributed to a WH insider.

Giuliani? Trump would lose any of my support. Why do they keep drawing from the same contaminated well that filled the swamp?


The game of life is rigged bro. It's a big club and you ain't in it.

Lumberjack's picture

William K Black needs to hold that position.

TheObsoleteMan's picture

No, it's actually a teeny, tiny club. If Trump truly was anti-establishment, and what he has painted himself to be, there is no way in hell they would have allowed him anywhere near running for President, let alone win an election. Our elections have been stacked for decades. They put up two candidates and don't give a shit which one you choose because they are both their guy/gal. What we are living through now is the biggest show on earth { that Ringling Bros. has called it quits, maybe they can start using there old phrase!}. Smoke and mirrors. Nothing is what it seems to be. Trust very little of what you see and nothing of what you hear. It's twilight zone time, and the sun is setting on the USA.

Giuliani's son, Andrew, already works in the WH.   One is enough.

indignation from the 9/11 events is long past.  

Mayor G Sauce cleaned up Manhattan in the 90s and covered BigTime for the culprits : Pentagon / Mossad / Israeli Art Students slash Terrorist Thermite Placers, etc.

Fact is : #1  Freedom Tower built by Chinese is done.

Fact #2  - Amurricans got over the Freedom Tower being done by Chinese.  Just like LibTard Kommifornians got over Chinese building New Bay Bridge (leaking like a sieve, but who cares,  MoonBeam will be long gone by the time the Piper Plays)

Fact #3 - Who is John O'Neill ?


Truth Eater's picture

Giuliani is too old, too liberal, and too agreeable to the catastrophe that was 911.  A stooge who is a sell-out.

Thank God...


Get Judge Napolotano, or Trey Gowdy.

artichoke's picture

You've been hibernating.  The past month or two, Napolitano has been viciously anti-Trump.  Got his new orders from corporate at Fox.

Gowdy's a possibility.  Not the gravitas of long-time Senator Sessions, but can probably do a good job.

Stanley Lord's picture

Trey Gowdy is all bark no bite

brushhog's picture

"The rules of the justice department" require that the parameters and limits of an investigation be spelled out. Nothing about this is in accord with the "rules of the justice department".

artichoke's picture

Giuliani just said that to tie Sessions' and Trump's hands.  He said something else to hurt them last time he was in the news.

Throw some mud on Giuliani.  We need to discredit his crap.

Oh please let it be so. Giuliani would then have to promptly recuse himself from #TRUMPRUSSIA: recall that he hinted, on national TV, that the Wikileaks data dump was coming a few days before it actually occurred. That puts him squarely in the conspiracy loop.

Face it: Everyone involved in the Trump campaign is tainted by this. #SAD

Or more accurately, if there is something, maybe a lot of them are tainted by it.

But they still don't have anything.

I remember when Rudi was just a cheap gumshoe raincoat with a bad comb-over (Rudi had the comb-over .. not the raincoat) trolling the Upper East Side for a date and flashing his DA badge for a free beer.

That was before he got all gussied-up & famous for bustin' into some 2nd-tier Wall St joints - like Elliot Ness on steroids -and marching the likes of Ivan Boesky out into the street in leg-irons... much to the delight of the gaping hordes and, no doubt, The Squid.

Such innocent days... in comparison....

DollarMenu's picture

IMO, since he turned in his oscar worthy performance during the 9/11 stageing,

he's been on a very tightly held leash.

Never quite allowed past the starting gate, he balks and folds.

He is spoiled goods.

The fucker turned the NYPD into the Stazi. Between the surveilance and having the storm troopers standing around carrying submachine guns, he's a freaking nightmare. The NYPD works hand in glove with the FBI , and intelligence agencies all over the US and even has officers stationed in Europe. That tidbit came out a few years ago and is a big "WTF".  Rudy likes his goons unaccountable.

NuYawkFrankie's picture

Let's just say that Rudi probably realises that keeping a "low profile" might be in his "best interests"... no point in stirring up a can of worms..

SixIsNinE's picture

if Rudy didn't do it = someone would have HAD to have done it.  Clean UP Manhattan is what i mean. 

I had my vehicle broken into 3 times and contents stolen in 1992-93.  NYPD caught the 2nd perp,  just a block from McSorleys - hell ya I had them prosecute the thiefs.

Point is, Manhattan was in sad shape after the late 80s Crack & Party boom - Rudy happened to be the guy who took credit for cleaning it up - beat cops did the job.

If you think any "other" mayor of NYC would have done anything different than Rudy on 9/11 - sorry - you are NOT clued in to the Big Leagues game.

Hello -  What  did you forget what the retrofit to WTC 7 23rd floor was? 

anyone with half a clue knew what is what when the 9/11 events went down.

WTC 1 & 2 don't just disappear in 9 seconds less than 50 minutes after the alleged collision of jetplanes.

Now I am very disappointed with the Tylers as it's been 3 years now since the fake moon landings were widely acknowledged as evidenced by NASA - since then the entire Jesuit conspiracy to up-end the European Protestant Re/volution/formation has been exposed as well.

8 years ago the demographics on Zeros was 45-55 and generally higher educated and better $$$.  "Higher Educated" can in certain cases mean higher indoctrinated.

Now HH points to his finally realizing the Apollo Program was a theatrical FAKE production by NASA - now take it the next step and what does that mean?

Get on it ZH - this is pathetic - 3 years running and you are behind the dumbest clueless tards.   What does it mean that we had to fake our AsstroNot program?

what it means is we could NOT have this peaceful plane of existence if we were in the NASA hypnotized version where we are spinning faster than the speed of sound, plus ZOOOOOMING along with the sun @ 1,300,000 MPH  - AND - simultaneously spinning 666,000MPH AROUND the SUN ! 

ZH Zeros put the impression out that we are a little sharper than the average knives in the drawer - however this is getting to be a drag. 

no wonder the Marfa Roundup was not well attended. 

Question is :  Can you REALLY handle the truth?

No shit. I can't endorse anyone who felatiated the Bush Cabal like he did after 911. POS loves his militarized police and extrajudicial actions.

Another faked news to create friction within the trump administration. MSM, DNC and Hillary have to come out with more faked news to keep trump busy and on the defensive so that trump has no time to investigate and prosecute against Hillary. prosecuting Hillar y is the only option left to prevent all these faked news and leaks.
